RARITAN TWP., NJ – There are some celebrities bagging groceries at ShopRite here today.

Among them is Assemblyman Jack Ciattarelli. It’s not like he needs the work – his term doesn’t expire for more than a year and it’s widely thought that he’ll run for governor next year. And while being a friendly bagger at ShopRite is a fine job, it’s not a common career path for those with an MBA.

Instead, Ciattarelli is working to raise awareness for National Hunger Action Month. ShopRite is hosting a Partners In Caring “Help Bag Hunger” day today in many of its stores across New Jersey, and also in its New York, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Delaware and Maryland stores.

Ciattarelli isn’t the only celebrity seen in the store today. Others who have been pitching in include County Sherriff Fred Brown, County Prosecutor Anthony P. Kearns, III, his chief of detectives John Kuczynski, County Clerk Mary Melfi, Flemington Mayor Phil Greiner, County Library Assistant Director Jennifer Winberry and state Senator Kip Bateman.

ShopRite is helping to raise the awareness because the company reports that nearly 50 million Americans -  including more than 16 million children -  suffer from “food insecurity,” which is defined as being without access to sufficient amounts of affordable nutritious food.

Over the last 16 years,  ShopRite Partners in Caring has donated more than $40 million dollars in support of Feeding America Food Banks
